CHICAGO, November 22, 2011 – Showcasing its excellence in medical imaging quality solutions, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging, will display its complete digital radiography (DR) solutions at the 2011 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) Annual Meeting, (Lakeside Center, #222) from November 27 to December 2, 2011. Medical professionals, including those from high volume hospital imaging centers and neonatal intensive care units (NICU), will have the opportunity to experience the wide variety of Canon imaging solutions.
"Dedicated to advancing the radiology profession, RSNA offers Canon the opportunity to educate radiologists on our impressive medical and imaging technology," said Tsuneo Imai, senior director and general manager, Medical Systems Division, Canon U.S.A. "At this year's RSNA meeting, we are pleased to present the Company's robust portfolio of DR solutions, including wireless, portable and general DR solutions that are designed to help meet the demands of radiologists."
The Canon flat-panel digital radiography detectors on display will include:
For a faster, more streamlined approach to digital radiography, the RadPRO1 40kW Digital Mobile System can be outfitted with a variety of Canon DR systems, including the Canon CXDI-70C Wireless DR System. Utilizing the CXDI-70C Wireless DR system, this digital X-ray solution eliminates the customary sensor cable while delivering high-quality images and effortless portability. Weighing 7.5 pounds, the durable Canon CXDI-70C Wireless DR system is easy to handle and has the same dimensions as a standard ISO 4090 film cassette and fits into most universal Bucky trays. The CXDI-70C Wireless DR system also incorporates a Cesium Iodide (CsI) scintillator, helping to reduce X-ray exposure to the patient.
Utilizing Canon DR systems in Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU) can help reduce workflow times. With the use of a custom tray, the new CXDI-80C Wireless and CXDI-60C DR Systems are compatible with most Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) beds, incubators and warmers without any modifications. Both detectors slide in most beds, incubators and warmers from either side with ease, creating minimal disturbances to the infant. Making them ideal devices for pediatric applications, both detectors produce high-quality images and incorporate a Cesium Iodide (CsI) scintillator, helping to minimize X-ray exposure to infants.
The RadPRO1 ELITE Overhead/Ceiling Mounted Radiography System offers three robust radiographic configurations that allow for easy, efficient exams needed by today's high-volume imaging departments. Equipped with a high-frequency generator, four-way float table, chest unit and overhead X-ray support, this modern system offers precise positioning with speed and effortless movements. For a fast, streamlined approach to digital radiography, the RadPRO ELITE Overhead/Ceiling Mounted Radiography System advances digital radiography application with the ability to be outfitted with the Canon CXDI-70C Wireless DR System, the new Canon CXDI-501C or the new general CXDI-401C DR systems. These Digital Radiography systems all feature a high-quality image sensor with a 125-micron pixel pitch, allowing medical professionals to capture defined images from nearly any anatomical view. These detectors also incorporate a Cesium Iodide (CsI) scintillator, helping to reduce X-ray exposure to the patient. With easy handles and cassette-size frames, these DR systems are exceptionally versatile, are easy to install and are ideal for diagnostic imaging areas and radiology rooms.
Offering a unique and highly versatile three-in-one imaging solution, the RadPRO1 D2-50RF Dynamic Digital Remote RF Imaging System provides exceptional image quality for fluoroscopy and dynamic examinations. The RadPRO D2-50RF Imaging System helps to enhance patient comfort with an intelligent design, including auto-positioning of the table to help meet high workflow demands. Equipped with the Canon CXDI-50RF DR Detector, this system provides dynamic digital remote-controlled fluoroscopy and radiography imaging capabilities for high-volume facilities. Depending on the image capture mode and size, the Canon CXDI-50RF DR Detector can take up to 30 frames per second (fps) for fluoroscopy imaging, and static multi-frame radiographic imaging at up to 15 fps. Utilizing its detachable cable, the sensor unit can be used in multiple rooms or multiple locations within the same room.
With high-quality image sensors, the Canon Digital Radiography detectors produce high-quality diagnostic images and the detectors with CsI scintillators result in minimal X-ray exposure to the patient. Ideal for various diagnostic imaging areas and radiology rooms, these Digital Radiography systems are exceptionally versatile, portable and easy to install.
